Remember to set meeting options when you create a new meeting

  • Create meeting.
  • From Microsoft  Teams, go to Calendar Meetings button , select a meeting, and then Meeting options.
  • If you have not scheduled a meeting, you may do this by selecting  Show participants  Show participants icon  in the meeting controls. Then, above the list of participants, choose Manage permissions .
  • You may choose to have students wait for you and you can choose whether to admit or deny them.
